Retrosternal lead placement: an attractive alternative to subcutaneous tunneling

Abstract

Complex lead placement is on the rise. When ipsilateral lead placement is unavailable, a retrosternal approach offers minimal cosmetic defects while minimizing lead injury. A retrosternal technique has yet to be described in the literature. Here, we describe our technique, tricks, and pitfalls to performing such an operation in three patients.
